PRESERVING THE AVAILABILITY AND IMPROVING THE RELIABILITY OF PASSENGER COACHES BY MODIFYING THE DESIGN OF THE ELECTRICAL AND AIR CONDITIONING EQUIPMENT

A brief description is given of the different stages in the different stages in the development of Deutsche Bundesbahan's air-conditioned passenger coaches. The paper states the main reasons for modifications and describes the measures for improving the reliability and for preserving the availability of passenger coaches. A few examples are given to illustrate the improvements meanwhile implemented. Such special work is normally performed in conjunction with planned maintenance work, and hence such improvements will become effective in practice only after a rather long time. In addition, the paper discusses the technical reasons for fixing the number of prototype vehicles, enabling well proven design configurations to be released for installation as a standard feature.
